Percy Nilegård has gotten in to the commercial radio business. The radio station rents premises of the fire station and its chief, the self willed Greger who's in charge of six well built firemen. One of them gets a presentation first in every episode, when we get into their special and relaxed relationship to each other. Percy is always after money and his ways to entice sponsors get more and more unconventional. We also follow the main radio host Glenn Killing with various (and often peculiar) guests. And also other shows like a reggae program, a Friday party program, teenage psychologist (and stereo fetishist) Farbror Barbro and Percy's own "Management Profile". Written by

Nile City is the perfect series to watch if you want to know how the Swedish society looked like in the early 1990's. The show is about a commercial radio-station and commercial radio-stations weren't allowed in Sweden until the period in witch the show takes place. Killinggänget who is the group that has made this series and who plays most of the characters are famous for their mix of physical humor and social debate. Many of the characters in the show are people you can meet in every day life (only hugely exaggerated) and many of the jokes makes you think after the laughter. It's an overall great series and you could always hope that more shows like this one will show up instead of all these boring sit-Com's, who has ever laughed at a sit-com?
